Essential Reading

'I have been a family historian for more than 40 years, and a professional historian for over 30, but as I read it, I was constantly encountering new ways of looking at my family history....Essential reading I would say!' Alan Crosby, WDYTYA Magazine

Ancestors' Advent Calendar: Dec 3rd: Decorate Your Christmas Table With Ribbons!

'Decoration for an Edwardian Christmas Table: The scheme illustrated relies for its chief attraction on tinsel ribbons, draped from four candlesticks to a tripod centre ornament, suggestive of a gypsy's cauldron. The ribbons are tied in a big bow holding a bunch of mistletoe.' 

The Morpeth Herald and Reporter, December 4th, 1909.
